OC Has Strong Showing at Programming Contest

Oklahoma Christian was one of just six universities with two teams in the top 25 at the South Central Regional Association of Computing Machinery Computer Programming Contest.

The other five were Baylor University, Louisiana State University, the University of Mississippi, the University of Texas- Austin, and the University of Texas-Dallas.

“Our students had a remarkable showing,” said Don Leftwich (75), chair of the department of mathematical computer and information sciences. “These results show, once again, how
well our students measure up when compared with very good students from other universities.”

OC’s teams finished 12th and 21st in the “open” division, which includes universities with graduate programs. OC’s 12th place team consisted of Sarah Bell, Tanya Thompson and Robert Rugamba. The 21st place team consisted of Corbin Murrow, Kyler Johnson and Silas Morris.
